Spotty flowers!!

How do you deal with brown spots on roses? I'm posting for my mom and sister who are non-professionally doing my cousin's wedding flowers for tonight. Some of the flowers have brown spots - is there any way to deal with this? Cut the rose petals with scissors? Google is yielding nothing but, "Don't use flowers with brown spots."

Ordering Flowers Long Distance

I need to send flowers to a family in Surrey, British Columbia, and I'd like a recommendation for a local company that can be depended on to do a good job with a bit of style - i.e., different from the standard FTD/800-FLOWERS arrangements. Google turned up a company called Kyla's - are they likely to be what I'm looking for?

Best florist in Long Beach, CA?

I'm on the east coast and I want to send flowers to a lady I really, really, really (did I mention "really"?) like in Long Beach, CA. Is there a great local florist that the hive mind could suggest?

A Silver Rose

I would like to spray paint a whole rose with metallic silver paint. The intention is that it will encase the rose, fully retaining its pretty rose shape for at least a few days, if not permanently. In reality the rose will probably wilt, or otherwise warp, leaving an ugly silver mess. I don't know. Any suggestions on how to get the results as imagined?
